Mr Mburu, his sister told our desk fainted and the guards thought he was dead, they allegedly took the three suspects to Ngati police station where they were charged in court on Monday and pleaded guilty to the stealing charges.
“My brother was left for dead, after a long search we found him lying helpless in a field at Methi where we had been directed by a lead guard only identified as Wachira,” Ms Jane Waceera told Kkonlinenews.co.ke.
She said his brother has been farming at the shores of the Delmonte farm until recently when they were forced out of the area and decided to be stealing at the farm to sustain his young family of 2 children.
She said her brother 30, has been rushed to Thika Level Five Hospital with fractured ribs and bleeding eyes.
